God’s Signature


God can hear
the silent whistle
of the soul.

God can see
the tears that
flow like rain and
the tears that
don’t make it
out of the corner
of our eyes, the
ones we think
no one else ever
sees.

God hears our
first breath and
our last breath,
and our sighs
in between.

Do you know that
God’s signature
is on every heart,
every heartbeat
is in His hand?

My breath is
slowed. I can’t
speak as I think
of these things.

We do not have
the power to
remember the
source of our
breath

every time

before we think,
before we speak,
or before we act.

There was One
who could hear
the heartbeats
of hatred but
didn’t speak.

Poet, Writer, US Army (Retired)

I dreamed of writing when I was a youngster. The love of books and writing may have helped to dull the pain of severe sexual abuse as I was sexually abused by two men at my father’s place of work from age 8 to 12 or so. I learned about this for the first time when I was 50 years old. So, as a boy, reading was the only place I had to go to. My fantasy world was better and safer than my real world. I loved reading and writing.
Reading books and writing poetry are a joy to me still and are an important part of my life. (See my About Me page on my blog for the complete profile.)
